Malkie and her mommy get ready for the most special day of all, Shabbos. They are busy with all the familiar preparations. Malkie helps and participates in every way–shopping, cooking, and setting the Shabbos table.
“Is it Shabbos yet?” asks Malkie.
“No, Malkie,” said her mommy.
“First we have to clean the house.”
The sequence action of the plot is endlessly fascinating to toddlers who revel in learning what comes next and who are figuring out the comforting, predictable patterns in their own lives. This is a book that can be read to a child as young as 12 months, and many parents claim it as the best first book for both boys and girls.
